Tuesday Science

Behind a bit-- this is from last Tuesday's science class: fingerprints, blood types, and other personal identification information.

Pressing an inky fingerprint on a balloon made it possible to *enlarge* the image so the kids could see the details of common fingerprint variations like loops, whorls and arches.

They also got to test fake blood samples to determine their Types:

They also learned a bit about deductive reasoning, and making inferences from incomplete data.

Afterwards, Mikro and I stayed at the library and read some science and some Greek mythology.
